president obama's pattern of untold trillions of dollars in wasteful government spending. over the past four years president obama has added so much to our national debt that he has already had to increase our nation's debt limit four separate times. this includes the two largest increases in our history. no other president of the united states has needed an increase of over $1 trillion. president obama has asked for that much twice. while he once promised to cut the deficit in half by now, he's done just the opposite. he'hehe's added as much debt in four years as all the previous presidents racked up in our country's first 225 years. president obama has maxed out the national credit card and now he wants a new one. in return, the president isn't willing to offer commitments that he'll try to be more responsible with that next credit card. in fact, under his latest budget, the president wanted to add another $6.4 trillion to our debt over the next five years. that's the wrong direction for our federal budget and for the nation's future. the president can take this opportunity to reassure har

to speak about taxes, debt and spending. it's time for president obama to show leadership, real leadership, on the biggest threat that america faces to our future prosperity. as my good friend, the republican leader, has said, if we don't get a handle on spending and debt, not much else matters. it has now been 1,371 days, almost four years, since democrats who control the united states senate have brought a budget to the floor and had a vote on and passed the budget. over that time our national debt has grown by more than $5.2 trillion. our credit rating has been downgraded because of fears that we may not be able to pay our debt back when it is ultimately due. and we have experienced the highest -- excuse me -- the longest period of high unemployment since the great depression. since the end of the official recession in 2009, americans' household median income has fallen by roughly $2,500, while the cost of employer-provided family health insurance has increased by more than $2,300, roughly a comparable amount. not only has income fallen by $2,500; costs have gone up thanks to obamacare

two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? will obama try to annihilate the republican party? facebook.com/carolcnn, or tweet me @carolcnn. i'll be right back. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair has the fastest retinol formula. to visibly reduce fine lines and wri
